Unfurnished apartments

If you are a Wayne State University student who is at least 20 years old or at least a junior, you are welcome to apply to live in an on-campus unfurnished apartment! Depending on availability and when you will start classes, you can either apply to start living on-campus for the Spring/Summer 2017 semester or the Fall 2017 semester.  Whether your housing agreement starts in the spring/summer or fall, your housing agreement will go through April 30, 2018.


We currently have a waitlist for all unfurnished apartments. All of the license agreements for our unfurnished apartments during the FALL 2017 semester are signed through April 30, 2018. That means the only way an apartment will become available is if someone cancels their agreement. Unfortunately, we have no way of knowing when or even if someone is going to cancel until they actually submit a cancellation form.  Because of that, we cannot predict when or even if an apartment will become available before April 30, 2018. Also, there are no temporary accommodations available either.

  • If you know of someone that already has an apartment and you would like join them, you and your roommate would need to read and complete an apartment roommate request form (PDF). Please return the completed form in to the Housing Office or you can scan it back to There is no deadline to submit the form.
  • We do not assign roommates in the unfurnished apartments.  However we have created a face book page that we hope will serve as a platform in assisting you find a roommate.  The face book page is not maintained by Housing.  It is up to you to check for posts regularly regarding your roommate search at
  • We do not have any information on off campus housing but you can go to to find information regarding housing in the surrounding area.
